Answer: The driving distance between Laredo, TX and Tampa, FL is approximately 1295 miles. The driving time would be approximately 21 hours 30 minutes if you were to travel non-stop in good driving conditions. (The driving time does not take into consideration conditions which may extend trip time such as weather, road work, border crossings and rush hour traffic in urban areas.)
Answer: It really depends on what you are looking for out of your park. My favorite is Lettuce Lake at 6920 East Fletcher Avenue. It has a long boardwalk over the river. You sometimes spot deer, rabbits, gators, and other wildlife. The Audubon has an educational center. There is a playground, bike trail, pavilions, grills, open fields, and bathrooms.
